A.7 Galactic Atlas
This atlas consists of model spectra of the Orion Nebula and of the NGC 7009 planetary Nebula.
The continuum of the Orion Nebula's template contains the nebular contribution plus a combination of Kurucz model atmospheres to simulate the stellar contribution. The fluxes of the UV, optical and near-IR emission lines from different sources are also incorporated into the template (J.R. Walsh, private comm.).
The continuum of the planetary nebula has a nebular component and a hot stellar component simulated by an 80000K black body. The fluxes of the UV, optical and near-IR emission lines, from different sources, are also incorporated into the template (J.R. Walsh, private comm.).
The spectra are located in the crgrid$galactic/ directory.
